Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: touch heads....actually

That's a misnomer. It's should actually be 'in the dark heads' which was the album that rekindled the deads comercial career, and brought the masses.

When the song Touch of grey came out in 82(?) it never denoted any change in fanbase. When the album came out in 87 the video was on MTV, the song was on the radio, and the frat boys/ suburban kids started coming to the shows to score. They also did a huge dylan summer tour in 87, which my dad got backstage tix. They were doing the biggest stadiums, and asked to never return to the small venues.
